Photography’s golden age

That age was spawned by magazines, particularly Life magazine, which began publishing in 1936. You can find more about this topic at the Library of Congress’ American Memory web site, particularly in a collection from the 1930s and 1940s. It’s worth noting that many of the great photographers of this era were women such as Dorthea Lange, who took the often seen photograph of a migrant mother in the 1930s (left).
